Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
You may have noticed AdSenseAdvisor (ASA) posting more than usual recently. What's going on, you might be wondering?
I'm stepping down as ASA, and another Googler has dutifully assumed the role. He/she is the one who's been posting as of today. This should come as a pleasant surprise to many of you who've longed for ASA to be more involved with the AdSense forum as AWA is with the AdWords forum. While the new ASA does have "day job" responsibilities at Google, he/she will be able to spend more time conversing with y'all and hopefully give AWA some competition for # of posts ;) GoogleGuy has probably mentioned this change as well in his forum.
As I have said many times, this forum is really an excellent resource for any AdSense publisher. There are some smart cookies on this forum, and I hope you continue with the thought-provoking threads.
With that, I'd like to leave you with one of my favorite quotes from this forum. Ah, a walk down memory lane- this is from 2003 just a few months after the launch of AdSense. Yes, that's how long I've been reading this forum!
One tip for thinking up passwords: think of a song and use the first letter of each word:
(Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, now...). Hard to shoulder-surf, not easily guessed, hard to forgot, and you start your day with a song in your heart.
Old ASA signing off ;-)
Outgoing ASA, thanks for your posts and the warm welcome for the next ASA. New ASA, lemme know anytime I can help with anything on my end. :)
AWA really needs some posting competition.
Thatís right - and having met the new ASA, I know we have a great person for this very important role!
New ASA, I hope you have as much fun as I do over in the world of the AdWords Forum. It's a great community here on WebmasterWorld, and we all learn a lot from each other.
Outgoing ASA, thanks for all you've done!
Old ASA; Thanks for the time, information, and guidance you've provided to members of this forum in the past. May be your future carry you onward and upward with the grace and dignity you've shown us all.
New ASA; Welcome to the WW (wild and wooly?) Adsense forum! As you are joining the fray in full swing, please be assured that we will generously allow you at least .005 nanoseconds to get up to speed. Opps, too late... :)
I know this is a bit confusing since I'm sharing the same alias as my predecessor, but I'd like to introduce myself while we're on the 'Changing of the Guards' thread.
First, thank you all for the warm welcome. I'm really excited about joining the WebmasterWorld community as your new ASA, and hope to dedicate some quality time to this forum.
I also want to thank the previous ASA, who has done a wonderful job establishing the role, genetically ambiguous makeup and all. :)
As I mentioned in an earlier post, WebmasterWorld is one of Google's best resources for learning from our AdSense publishers, so it's an honor to be able to participate.
I look forward to our future conversations,
Your new ASA
Guys, can we compose a list of important things we need to share with ASA in a special post? About new features we wish to see for example. Jenstar, may be you can help to get this started with a sticky post.

Let's give ASA a chance to put his/her feet up and get a feel for the forum first :) We can be a rather <ahem> enthusiastic bunch of publishers, but it is a good idea for once ASA settles in ;)
I know AdWordsAdvisor has done a few of them, and traditionally AWA kicks them off with the first post [webmasterworld.com], so hopefully ASA will be doing one sometime in the future.

:-) Wish you all the best for the future [and in case you are retiring - Wish you a very happy vacation!]
Welcome to the new ASA. I know your posts will be fantastic advice and much awaited by everyone. It's great to have someone from the plex on the board - talking to all the members. A very warm welcome to you and best of luck.
Google rules for having people communicate with us. Very smart business move too.
